The walrus, which made an accidental voyage from the Arctic Circle to the Irish coast last month, continued its strange behavior by jumping into a passing iceberg and falling asleep on boarding ships. A path for lifeboats.
Conservation groups and local authorities fear that too much human interest will plague the walrus, as the marine mammal named after the Valley has become a tourist attraction. They now warn tourists not to go Morse Jet ski racers, snowboarders and paddlers have been harassing mammals since they came so close to the Easter weekend.
On March 14 she saw a 5-year-old girl walking with her father and Wally for the first time; He fell on the rocks on Valentia Island in County Kerry, Ireland I mentioned live science earlier. No one knows how they got to their destination thousands of miles from the Arctic resting place, but a marine biologist speculates that the animal was sleeping on a floating iceberg.
But the journey of the Valley did not end at this beach. Travel 450 km south of County Kerry to Pembrokeshire, Wales in just six days.

We urge people to act responsibly this weekend, if they are on the train in the area away.”
Walruses are rarely seen in the southern part of the Arctic Circle, where they hunt oysters in shallow water and rest on nearby beaches and icebergs.
